    As someone who loves to ski, I don’t see any real need for another resort here. There is already Lookout Pass in the same vicinity as well as Silver mountain a little further west in Idaho. A large portion of the usage at the above come from the greater Spokane area, which already has 7 ski areas within about two hours. They should just leave this as a wilderness.

    It sounds to me like it is really just a way to sell mountain real estate, something Montana and the United States doesn’t need more of.

    maybe these people need to look into eco tourism. no trace, profitable too

    From the article it sounds like if the applicants address some lynx issues all is a roll. Very disappointing for someone like me who is trying to raise my kid in a nearby town where it is harder and harder for regular folk to own any piece of property, however small and austere. A big resort just S of Missoula would make it even harder for our town to stay “small town, working class”. And I think that’s a damn shame.

    Here is one more reason to add to the list as why this is a bad idea here in Idaho. We can only assume this resort if built will suffer a similar fate.
